Default Measurments for tonnage of 2700SCR for coast guard

We are applying for coast guard documentation for our 1992 2700SCR. We have to measure for the tonnage, but aren't sure of the measurements of our boat. We just wondered if anyone might have the measurements needed for this boat? (We don't have an owners manual.) The coast guard simplified form to determine tonnage needs the overall length of the boat excluding bowsprit; the beam width; the depth of the hull from the bottom of the keel to the point at which the hull meets the deck. Any help would be appreciated...hoping someone here with this type boat has applied before and may have the measurements. :?

I maybe wrong but i beleive the early 90s 2700scr is the same basic boat as the late 90s 2800scr and the later 2900scr so you should be able to get the weights and sizes off the later brochure/manuals

Tonnage for documentation purposes has nothing to do with weight. It is a measure of volume. 100 cubic feet of internal volume equals 1 ton. This is a measurement used in commercial ships to determine taxes and fees due based on the volume of cargo carrying capacity. The weight of a vessel is known as "displacement".

Default Was the 2700 eligible for CG Documentation?

JustMeTerry - Did you wind up qualifying for CGD? We are in the process of buying a '94 2700SCR. Could you share the measurements, if you have them?

Thanks,

JM

Post was submitted in Febuary 2009. The Original Poster (OP) has only submited 1 post (the original post). The OP hasn't logged onto since March 2009.

There are only 3 reasons to Document a vessel with teh US Coast Guard (International Travel; Bank loan requirement; Commercial Vessel). Any boat can be documented. Keep in mind that this does not preclude you from possibly having to register in one or more states, based on their registration requirements. For example, if a state requires a boat be registered in that state if you boat more than 30 consecutive days, then it must be registered in that state, regardless of whether the vessel is documented or not.
